Embrace who you are?: This is just minoxidil, which sort-of-works for a while, plus a bunch of placebos ("vasodilators" and similar nonsense). Another idea -- buzz your head, hit the gym hard, sport some nicely-trimmed facial hair, and wear a ball cap when you feel like it.

Probably not.: Contrary to what you read online, side effects from rogaine (minoxidil) are rare. There are many common causes of palpitations. You need to see your family doctor or a cardiologist and find out exactly what is causing them. It could be the rogaine (minoxidil), or just too much coffee - but it could be something more serious. Don't assume it's the rogaine (minoxidil). ...Read more
